Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Communication Program

Javante, Communications Major

Name: Javante Ingram
Major: Communication
Dallas, TX
I was crowned Miss Teen United States in 2007.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... after looking at a number of schools, Belhaven provides the full package. I love that it is a very diverse, well rounded liberal arts school, with a strong athletics program. Belhaven also offers a great sense of community; there's not one day when walking to class that I do not see a familiar, friendly face!

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... though it’s hard to choose just one, the relationship that sticks out to me the most is the one with Dr. Elayne Anthony, the chair of the Communication Department. Dr. Anthony knows everyone in this town and in this state in the field of Communication and she provides so many opportunities for her students to get hands-on experience before we graduate. In addition to being a great teacher, I consider her a great friend. She is 100% dedicated to her students both on a personal and academic level.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I can go out into the field of Communication with confidence and experience under my belt. In the classroom we are taught by media professionals and they impart so much wisdom and tools on how to meet with success in this field. The internships we participate in afford us the opportunity to put what we've learned into action.

One word to describe your experience at Belhaven: Fabulous!
